EPAM 5000 Particulate Monitor

The EPAM 5000 is a highly sensitive and accurate portable monitor for ambient and environmental monitoring. Interchangeable size-selective sampling heads for PM10, PM2.5, PM1.0 and TSP enables specific particle fractions to be targeted.


The portable HAZ-DUST EPAM-5000 particulate monitor is ideal for ambient, environmental, and indoor air quality investigations. The highly sensitive EPAM-5000 uses light scattering to measure particle concentration and provide real-time determinations and data recordings of airborne particle concentration in mg/m3.

Interchangeable size-selective impactors allow PM10, PM2.5, PM1.0, or TSP monitoring. The unique aerodynamic particle sizing and optional 47-mm in-line filter holder loaded with appropriate filter can provide concurrent gravimetric sampling. Download and store sampling data on a PC for analysis and reporting using included DustComm Pro Software.
